10 Things We've Learnt About Miley Cyrus From Her Naked Rolling Stone Cover

We didn't expect Miley Cyrus to retire to a life of polo necks and cross-stitching following her controversial VMAs performance earlier this month and we were right. Here she is covering the October edition of Rolling Stones magazine and while she's certainly wearing enough jewellery, just like in her 'Wrecking Ball' video she appears to have forgotten her clothes. Naughty Miley!

That's right, the former Hannah Montana star continues in her efforts to ditch her Disney image with a nude photoshoot showcasing her various tattoos - and she even got a new one inked during the interview - the words 'Rolling $tone' on the bottom of her feet. And as that tongue making another cameo, Miley certainly had plenty to say for herself. Here's what she revealed in her conversations with Rolling Stone journalist Josh Eells...

1. She has  A LOT of tattoos...

As well as various other body art the Miley has 'THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT'. She explained, "It's from a Teddy Roosevelt speech. It's about how people judge who wins and who loses, but they're not the ones in there fighting. It's about critics." Take that haters!

2. Her best friend is her assistant...

That's right, 22-year-old Cheyne is responsible for keeping Miley in check and ordering her taekout. They've known each other for a long time, but Miley saved him from his job in Starbucks last year: "I was like, 'Fuck that. My best friend can't work at Starbucks! We've been working ever since."

3. She can make fun of her public image...

After her VMAs duet with Robin Thicke prompted countless internet memes and 161 complaints to the FCC Miley jokes, "I think it's an important time not to Google myself."

4. Her VMAs performance was toned down...

Apparently Miley could have pushed the boundaries a little furter with her twerking as she revealed: "Honestly, that was our MTV version. We could have even gone further, but we didn't. I thought that's what the VMAs were all about! It's not the Grammys or the Oscars. You're not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style. It's supposed to be fun!"

5. Kanye West buys her Celine slippers...

The rapper has become somewhat of a mentor to 20-year-old Miley and that, of course, extends to her wardrobe. He replaced a pair of her fur Céline slippers that were falling apart with five brand spanking new pairs - now that's generosity. Miley gushes: "Kanye is the shit. I kind of have a good relationship with him now. It's good to have someone you can call and be like, 'Yo, do you think I should wear this?' 'Do you think I should go in the studio with this guy?' 'Do you think this is cool?' That's what homies are supposed to do."

6. And in turn she's got Bieber's back...

Miley and Justin hangout 'a little bit', but she worries about the way his career is progressing. She says, "I'm not much older than him, so I never want it to feel like I'm mentoring him. But I do mentor him in a way. Because I've been doing this shit for a long time, and I already transitioned, and I don't think he's quite done it yet. He's trying really hard. People don't take him seriously, but he really can play the drums, he really can play guitar, he really can sing. I just don't want to see him fuck that up, to where people think he's Vanilla Ice. I tell him that. Like, 'You don't want to become a joke. When you go out, don't start shit. Don't come in shirtless.' But the thing is. I think boys are, like, seven years behind. So in his head, he's really, like, 12."

7. There's a reason why she's so comfortable naked...

Growing up in provincial Tennessee Miley claims: "I'm still kind of a semi-nudist, because I never had clothes on."

8. Her mum still embarrasses her...

The biggest thing her mum does to make her cringe is call her 'sweet girl' in public. Ahead of her VMAs performance Miley reveals, "I was about to put on my teddy-bear costume and she's like, 'Sweet girl, do you need to potty before you put your costume on?' I'm like, 'Mom! Kanye is standing right here!'"

9. She gets texts from Pharrell Williams...

After the VMAs the rapper/producer/designer sent her a 1,000 character text including, "The VMAs was nothing more than God or the Universe showing you how powerful anything you do is. It's like uranium – it has the power to take over lives or power entire countries. Now that you've seen your power, master it. You're not a train wreck," he says later. "You're the train pulling everyone else along." Lil' Kim also calls her "My little pumpkin" and says, "I just had to tell you you're so fucking smart. I love you and all the press you are gettin."

10. She lives in a fairytale (sorta)...

On her celebrity lifestyle Miley says, "I call myself Rapunzel with a mohawk. Standing by my window, looking at the paparazzi, just wanting to leave the crib."
